Naumai e tenei paanui. Last Thursday, 15 April, the project roopuu met for a full day in Nelson to begin their work on the refresh of the occupational therapy competencies, code of ethics and scope of practice. A timeline was developed aimed at having documents available for the Board to sign off in October 2021. This will be confirmed once initial drafting work has been undertaken. Regular consultation will occur during the next six months. Here are the roopuu from left back: Jane Hopkirk, Jo-Anne Gilsenan, Gilbert Azuela, Crystal Beavis, and from front right: Joy Aiton, Sally Wenley and Dr Sharon Gemmell.
